Booth Library Seeking Information on Memories of Schooltime


Eastern Illinois University's Booth Library is developing a major exhibit to provide an overview of the Normal schools in Illinois, the training of teachers, and school life in Illinois.

Preparations for this exhibit are underway, and community involvement would be appreciated.

Allen Lanham, dean of Library Services, hopes that local residents of all ages will be a part of this project, providing stories or artifacts related to their school experience. Although Eastern will be featured, education at all levels from around the state is to be included.

Anyone interested in providing information or participating in this project is encouraged to contact the library online here, by phone at 217-581-6061, or by writing to Booth Library Exhibits, 600 Lincoln Ave., Charleston, IL 61920.

Programming related to the library exhibition will be offered during October 2010, to coincide with the reaccreditation visit of EIU's teacher certification program by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
